THROUGH DIFFICULTIES TO THE STARS"— such are the words we have chosen as 
our class motto, and they represent, in a measure, our attainments. For the publication of this 
book was consummated in the face of besetting adversities, yet persistent striving has brought us "to the 
stars." In the flush of our success, we ask a lenient judgment upon '14's Class Book, first of all, from 
you, dear Faculty, kindest or friends, but severest of critics. You would gladly have spared us our labor, 
we know, but rather than relinquish what we consider our privilege, our duty, we chose the labor. 

It is with feelings of diffidence that we give our little book to the world, for its conception is a 
new one, and originality is ever provocative of criticism. Yet we trust that the sharp edges of the grad- 
uates' strictures will be tempered and blunted by the recollection of their past tribulations in the journal- 
istic field. We have most to fear from you, Juniors and remaining undergraduates. Your Class Books 
of the future are as yet but glorious visions of perfection, by comparison with which, our feeble effort 
must pale into insignificance. We trust our hopes will be amply fulfilled, and that the precedent we have 
set in replacing the "Neume" may be perfected and perpetuated. 

To those who, by effort and sacrifice, have made possible the publication of this book, the Edi- 
tors would extend their heartiest thanks and kindest appreciations. Their spirit of optimism and good- 
will has transformed a work of dull routine and dry detail into a labour of love, the recollection of which 
will always remain a source of pleasure and satisfaction. 

In conclusion, we would ask indulgence for the shortcomings and failings of our production. 
They were not due to lack of aspiration for the highest and best, but rather to the fact that our means 
and capacities subjected us to insuperable limitations. We trust that all may linger long over the good, 
and quickly forget the imperfect, in this little book.

SENIOR CLASS HISTORY 




HE greatest privilege of any student is to become a Senior 
in the institution in which all his fondest dreams and 
hopes are centered. That " History repeats itself " is 
just as true of the Class of 1914 as of 1913. for the 



faculty must grind out a Senior class every year. We have shared 
with other classes the same advantages in the foremost music school 
of America. But after all, that is a matter relating to the school 
itself. 

To the historian is it given to prove before the whole world that his 
class is the most marvelous one which has ever gone forth from his 
school. We, therefore, take pride in saying that the Class of 1914 is 
most distinguished. We are the second largest graduating class in the 
history of the New England Conservatory, and the spirit which the 
Class of 1914 has manifested during the past two years has probably 
never before been equalled. Any one who is acquainted with the 
school knows the significance of such a statement. Out of a class num- 
bering nearly a hundred, one-fourth of the members reside outside of 
Boston proper. This fact, together with the arrangement of classes 
and lessons which is peculiar to a school of music, could form a splendid 
argument for non-attendance at class meetings. But this class is too 
enterprising to allow any of its members to resort to such an excuse. 
As an example of our class spirit, we might instance a long-to-be-re- 
membered meeting at which our Director was announced to speak, 
and at which larger numbers were present than any preceding class 



meeting could boast of. It might not be amiss to mention here chat 
at this gathering, Mr. Chadwick gave special praise to the class and 
our president, Henry Damsky — a presence not to be dealt with lightly — 
for being the first class in the histc-y--of the Conservatory that had 
generously responded to its class dues. 

It has been said that that spirit which breathes in a nation, an insti- 
tution, or a school is incarnated in the spirit of the individual, and 
without it a nation, an institution, or a school is a vain and useless 
thing. We have had this spirit in a marked degree. It is true we 
gained a great deal through the heritage of former classes, and we hope 
that our experiences will help smooth the way for the classes in the 
future. 

We came together from the four corners of the earth filled with 
illusions, hopes and aspirations that are common to students the wide 
world over. With fear and trembling we crossed the threshhold of 
" 59," but with normal pulse-beats we came out again. The passing 
of the Junior entrance examinations marked the first grave step in our 
history. We were welded together as a class by Mr. Chadwick on 
October 30, 1912. 

As we take a final retrospect of our Junior year, there are three class 
social affairs which stand out in striking relief. They were an " Ac- 
quaintance Party," a Dance given for the Seniors, and our Junior 
Concert of May 28, which was a great success.

As Juniors, we stood somewhat in the shadow of the Ciass of 1913, 
but in this our Senior year we stand without a peer. This year we have 
been a " live wire." Not for one moment have we allowed the grass 
to grow under our feet. Enthusiasm and class loyalty have reigned 
supreme. This was shown to a great extent by the persistent appeals 
made by the Neume Committee, the President and the class itself 
to the Directory Committee for a continued annual publication of a 
class book. The Directory Committee made insistent demands that 
we have no Neume, but it found we were a class to be reckoned with, 
and many private conferences followed. Our slogan was: " We will 
have a class book." Out of this idea grew the great and good desire 
to have a book known as the " Senior Class Book." Our point was 
finally gained, and the result lias materialized into this book. Although 
constructed on very conservative lines, with little opportunity for 
originality, we feel proud to offer it to the Conservatory as the first 
number of a unique Class Book. 

On November 13, 1913, the Seniors entertained the Juniors at a 
dance in Recital Hall. For the first time in two years the ban on 
dancing was lifted, and we enjoyed the modern dances. Near the end 
of the first half-year, the class got together at a " Twisted Whist " 
party, given in the chapter rooms of Sinfonia Fraternity, closely followed 
by a dance in February, to which escorts were invited. And yet again 
we made merry at the " Country Fair." It was there in the " merrie 
month of May " that the fortune teller revealed to us our future careers. 

Of great importance to the Senior Class was the Mason and Hamlin 
annual prize competition, which was held in Jordan Hall, Monday 
afternoon, April 0. There were ten Seniors competing for the coveted 



< 



grand piano — ten talented Seniors of whom we were justly proud. A 
decision of the judges, Dr. Karl Muck, Mr. Harold Bauer and Mr. 
Chadwick, awarded the piano to Herbert W. Ringwall. 

The Class Concert, the Ciass Dance, the Aiumni Banquet and the 
joyous festivities of Commencement Week we have yet to enjoy to- 
gether before we say a iast farewell. 



We shall leave these halls with deep regret and sadness, but around 
thee, Alma Mater, will cling the dearest joys of our student days, the 
fondest memories of our instructors and of one another. Thou hast 
opened to us a greater and a happier life of service to the world. Where- 
ever we may go, we will cherish thee in our hearts, and lay at thy altar 
all worldlv achievements.

O pause. Classmates, a little while; 
Life's threshold lies before. 



Together we have sought the heights 

Anrid life's din and roar, and strife. 

Though oft the struggle bore us down 

To depths of darkness and despair 

Where groping blindly seemed a snare, 

Yet far above in radiant light 

Thy form, dear Alma Mater, loomed so bright. 

That weakness, fear, and vain alarms 

Pled quickly from our weary souls 

Like heavy, treach'rous veils of mist 

That roil back from the city's gate 

Revealing sunshine through the clouds. 



And now we go our ways alone 

Each to his own life task; 

But in the heart of every one 

Sing melodies divinely wrought. 

And if a gleam of truth we've caught 

By contact with a high ideal — 

A truth, no son and daughter may conceal 

'Tis duty bids we give ourselves 

In willing service for mankind 

As thou, dear mother, freely gave 

Of thy sweet self that we might find 

True happiness and peace of mind. 



O pause, Classmates, a little while; 
Life's threshold lies before.

JUNIOR CLASS HISTORY 

9 




T would take an author of great mental powers and a 
master of the pen to write a page of facts that would 
do justice to the Junior Class of 1915. I suppose we 
have the right, at any rate, we have taken the privilege, 



of being so conceited as to believe that our Class is the Class, and that 
our predecessors lacked some of our enthusiasm and originality. 
Yet it may be possible thac we are merely keeping alive a form of con- 
ceit that has predominated in every Junior Class. We hope, however, 
that we shall not hinder this habit from becoming stronger when it 
spreads its influence over the class that is to succeed us, for any organiza- 
tion that lacks enthusiasm and a belief that it can surpass the efforts 
of its predecessors soon sinks into oblivion. 

Anybody who entered within the four walls of our Alma Mater 
during the first few weeks of the new school year would have mistrusted 
that something was to happen. Evidence of a coming event was 
casting its shadow. Although faint, it gave signs of increasing, and 
was tending to concentrate into definite forms. The murmurings of 
the few increased and spread to the multitude. Then placards an- 
nounced the day on which all forces would congregate and fix its purpose. 

On October 29, 1913, there came into existence an organization 
known as the Junior Class of 1915, a class whose ambition was as high 
as the stars and destined to play an important role in the events of 
the year. Our first great desire was to " get acquainted " and " stay 
acquainted." We had unconsciously adopted the slogan of the Class 



of 1911, and if the members of that class had been present at our " Ac- 
quaintance Party " on November 17, 1913, they would have witnessed 
the most successful party that has ever been held in Recital Hall. Good 
fellowship ruled supreme that evening, and all credit is due to our 
excellent Entertainment Committee. 

At one of the first class meetings, crimson and white were chosen as 
the class colors. Not to be outdone by former classes in originating 
and carrying into effect new ideas, we purchased a gavel which it is 
our intention to hand down to other Junior classes. 

On December 15, 1913, our committee again gave evidence of its 
proficiency in the art of entertaining, by inviting us to a " Christmas 
Tree Party." Each person present was presented with a small gift, and 
a bag of " real candy " and popcorn. Our next social affair in May, 
is not soon to be forgotten as it eclipsed all previous attempts at en- 
tertaining. 

There are many weeks to come before we cease to exist as a Junior 
class officially, and there is no doubt but that a progressive mind will 
suggest something that will cause the class of 1915 to be immortal. 
As we look back at our accomplishments of the past few months, there 
is much cause for satisfaction ; and as we look forward with expectancy 
into the future, we feel sure that it has a great deal in store for us. 
For, the policy of the Class of 1915 is two-fold: in glory of 1915, and in 
the cultivating of a strong spirit of loyalty to our Alma Mater.

THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 

"Every Student a Graduate; Every Graduate an Alumnus." 



T 



'HE New England Conser- 
vatory Alumni Association 
has one interest that stands out 
above all others — the graduating 
class. It has a message to those 
who are soon to enter into a new 
relation with the Conservatory. 
As the wise father admonishes 
his son who starts out for the 
city, " Be honest!", and the 
captain charges the recruit, 
" Be obedient!", the employer — 
the apprentice, " Be prompt!", 
and the teacher — the pupil, "Be 
diligent," even so the alma mater 
speaks out to her sons and daughters, " BE LOYAL!" 

The truly successful commander is he who commands not only 
men and women, but respect, devotion and loyalty. He must, per- 
force, stand for something worthy. If he do not, he will be liable to 
find scorn, mutiny and rebellion within the ranks. To that degree 
that your alma mater commands respect will you be loyal. She has 
given to you knowledge and you possess now an aspiration to gain 
wisdom. How better then can yon serve her, than to prove ever a 




worthy exponent of New England Conservatory training and discipline 
and to keep a heart all agiow for the old school that equipped you 
with a cultured musical mind? 

Seniors, with your splendid class spirit, I am forced to believe that 
you have come to realize that enthusiasm, college spirit, brotherhood, 
sisterhood in the student is worth while. And if these are worth while 
during the student days, assuredly loyalty in the graduate years is 
sound logic. You have registered year after year for study, and now 
comes the opportunity for you to register for loyalty in the Alumni 
Association — an organized body with a field of usefulness. We need 
the keen brains of the seniors in our Forward Movement because we 
recognize in you today, the most available, serviceable and significant 
resource of this school. Are you not to go into the world as brand-new, 
living, working exemplars of what the alma mater has done for you and 
made you? 

Work for the alma mater outside of her walls with the same per- 
severance and efficiency that you have worked for yourselves within 
her walls. Seek a place in the front ranks of the alumni army among 
the outposts, pickets and cavalry skirmishers and not lie back in the 
ambulance corps following on behind. There are now over four hundred 
of life members of whom Lillian Nordica, 76, stands out pre-eminent. 
Numbers make for enthusiasm which in turn yields the leaven for more 
work and finer accomplishment. What a signal stroke should all the 



members of the class of 1914 enroll themselves as life workers in the 
Alumni Association for the sake of N. E. C! The news would be 
Hashed to graduates everywhere and the impetus to the organized 
a'.umni body would he immediate and powerful. 

The heritage bequeathed to you should inspire you to work, devotion 
and success. Your alma mater was founded with a peculiar reverence, 
a consecration to duty, an unflagging perseverance I cannot help 
1 elieve that Eben Tourjec must have had a soul-stirring vision of some 
great monument, such as ours, to the cause of music and education 
else how shall one account for that unceasing personal sacrifice — the 
tiue index of greatness — his ever-constant labor, his God-pervading 
and man-winning personality? Founded in the little town of East 
Greenwich. R. [., fifty-seven years ago, with obscure teachers and a 
mere handful of pupils, and despite adversity of every kind, this insti- 
tution thrives today with seventeen hundred graduates, three thousand 
yearly students, a faculty world-famous! She must flourish in the 
days to come, for this Conservatory was born into the world in honor 
to fill a place in the minds and hearts of a music-loving people. Wed 
might she be called, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and four- 
teen, the United States Conservatory of Music' 

Seniors, a Conservatory diploma is no mean asset to you; your life 



as a musician is of no slight import to the Conservatory; but greater 
than either and both are your life and work as a loyal alumnus to your 
alma mater. It must not matter whether or not you have liked this 
man or that man, this rule or that rule; the institution itself is bigger 
than any one man or company of men, or rule or code of rules. If 
you can read on your diploma that you have not only graduated in 
piano, organ, voice or violin, but that you have graduated from prejudice, 
pettiness, iealousy, and envy, you will be the possessors of priceless 
parchments. 

The future of the New England Conservatory is in the hands of her 
graduates as they go on to the field of world work. If they, by indif- 
ference, negligence or malice, besmirch her name, alas! If they glory 
in her, all is well. In faith, sacrifice and devotion was your alma mater 
founded. In obedience to duty, fidelity to principle, reverence for 
tradition will she be preserved; and the conscrvers, like those of any 
and all great institutions of learning the world over, will be the alumni 
who catch the true spirit in the student service and who go forth loving 
the alma mater with a loyalty that for all time will work and win for her.

The Hellenic Society was formed in December 1910, by the four 
national Greek letter societies at the New England Conservatory, 
with Mr. F. Otis Drayton as the first president. At that time there was 
felt a lack of collective gathering among the students, hence the Greek 
organization with the following object in the Constitution: 

L. To promote thorough co-operation and affiliation. 

a Closer friendship among the members of the national Greek letter 
societies at the Conservatory and to bind them together in a spirit, 
of true friendship and mutual helpfulness. 

b The advancement of graduate and undergraduate interests of the 
Conservatory. 

c To assist worthy students by the establishment of free scholarships. 

d And in general to aid the Conservatory, assist each other and further 
the true progress of art. 

During the four years of the existence of the Hellenic Society it 
has been the forum for discussion at the regular monthly meetings of 
general fraternity matters, and we also have enjoyed many social 
evenings. This year the gatherings have been of unusual interest, 
as we have had as our guests for the first time, Mr. Chadwick and Mr. 
Goodrich, who addressed us as fraternity men rather than as the Direc- 
tor and Dean of our school. We are also looking forward to the honor 
of having Dr. Black meet with us, and enjoy hearing his reminiscences 
of his student life at Edinburgh. The annual dance at the Copley- 
Plaza, given for the benefit of our scholarship fund, was the usual 
brilliant and enjoyable affair. The Hellenic Society is the one medium 
at the Conservatory through which inter-fraternal interest may be 
perpetuated and form a more intimate relationship between the 
authorities and the fraternities as a whole.
